Let's start with a quick recap. The first tweet that caught our attention came from the verified "Intel Graphics" account and showed a GPU separated from its heatspreader, with a AA battery in between for as sense of scale. It actually looked like a large workstation CPU, but was actually a graphics chip with "many tens of billions of transistors."
"This was called the 'baap of all' by our team....The 'Baahubali of all' is baking as well. Let’s hope the wait will be shorter than what @ssrajamouli put us through for @BaahubaliMovie :)," Koduri wrote.
What does it all mean? Let's start with the easy extrapolation—another GPU not pictured is also in the works, or "baking," as Koduri puts it. The high-performance 'father of all' GPUs will come first, obviously, but it will be followed by something that is potentially even more powerful.
"The word 'Baahu' means arms and 'bali' means strength. In this case, however, it might actually be used to refer to the superhero/epic film that Raja was involved in," Pirzada writes.
Put another way, Koduri essentially referred to a GPU in development, one that will succeed the 'father of all' GPUs as the 'superman of all' GPUs. Koduri also goes on to hint that it could be arriving sooner than people think, saying he hopes the wait is shorter than the one between the announcement of the Baahuabli movie and when it actually launched.
We'd encourage you to check out Pirzada's full write-up, as it also contains some interesting measurement estimates. Using the AA battery for scale, he recons the massive GPU is around 3,696mm2, with the area underneath the heatspreader being about 2,373mm2. It's no wonder Koduri is calling the father of all GPUs.
